Cape Buffalo Hunting

Cape Buffalo

Syncerus caffer

Cape buffalo, one of the ‘big five’ of dangerous African game. Considered by some to be the most dangerous of African big game. Requiring a well-placed shot, these otherwise docile animals can become raging torrents of unstoppable aggression when angered or injured – almost 2000lbs of adrenaline fuelled, horned muscle heading towards you. Hunting these dangerous beasts is a thrill in its own right and makes for an exhilarating hunt indeed.
